Sure, Zulfiya is a model. Of course I knew it. I’d spotted her from afar.
I’m a little bit intimidated by her beauty ... but she’s been waiting there for 5 minutes now- and so have I.
Alright Steph, just go for it.
It turns out Zulfiya is not your what you might expect from a supermodel. No arrogance, no conceit. In fact, she’s a little shy and insecure :
”I didn't get any sleep last night…
- Haha, party night ? (I can hear bottles popping and picture small clouds of fairy dust powdering table tops)
- No, I have two children and I think that's actually more exhausting than any night out."
In the blink of an eye my supermodel clichés have slapped me in the face- who's the conceited one now? Zulfiya is soft, kind and very funny. Her cute accent imported from Azerbaijan gives a warm aura to the Place de la Bourse. My date finally shows up, I have to leave ... I almost regret he wasn't a little late !
